A bag full of Dinosaurs!

It was my cheeky nephew’s 2nd birthday on Monday so I have made him a handy bag to keep all his dinosaurs in:

dino-bag1The fabric is from the Michael Miller Dinosaur range, the lining is great it just says DINOSAUR! over and over again.

dino-bag2An assortment of bright coloured plastic dinosaurs completes the present, if he is anything like my son he will know the names of all the dinosaurs by the time he is six!

dino-bag3The bag matches the shorts that I made for him last summer, but I am not sure if they will fit him this summer!

Cake Dress & new Jersey fabrics

We have got some fab new jersey fabrics on the website so I decided to have a go at the Cake Red Velvet dress,

cake-sewing-patterns-red-velvet-knit-dress-1421-p[ekm]197x288[ekm]it was fairly straight forward, I tried to use my serger but I am really struggling with it, I think the tensions are all wrong but I just get confused when I try and balance it and it just seems to get worse! So I used a small zig-zag stitch on my sewing machine instead.

jersey-dressThe fabric is lovely, navy blue with red birds on it, it is T-shirt weight so it drapes nicely.

I will let you know how I get on! Happy sewing!!
